Introduction to Infrared and Electro-Optical Systems

Overview

Electro-Optics (EO) is a technology area that involves the generation, modulation, detection, measurement, and display of optical radiation by electrical means. EO includes lasers, photometry, infrared, and other types of imaging systems. This newly revised and updated edition of a classic Artech House book offers a current and complete introduction to the analysis and design of EO imaging systems. The Second Edition provides numerous updates and brand new coverage of today's most important areas, including the ...

Overview

Electro-Optics (EO) is a technology area that involves the generation, modulation, detection, measurement, and display of optical radiation by electrical means. EO includes lasers, photometry, infrared, and other types of imaging systems. This newly revised and updated edition of a classic Artech House book offers a current and complete introduction to the analysis and design of EO imaging systems. The Second Edition provides numerous updates and brand new coverage of today's most important areas, including the integrated spatial frequency approach and a focus on the weapons of terrorists as objects of interest.

This comprehensive reference details the principles and components of the Linear Shift-Invariant (LSI) infrared and electro-optical systems and shows how to combine this approach with calculus and domain transformations to achieve a successful imaging system analysis.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This introduction emphasizes the analysis and design of infrared and electro-optical imaging systems, beginning with a background review of mathematics, LSI systems, and diffraction principles necessary to perform sensor analysis. Part 2 describes LSI system component modeling associated with the targets and backgrounds, atmospheric path, each of the sensor components, and the human visual response. The concluding section combines the LSI system methods and the component models to provide overall system level performance estimates for I2R and EO sensors.
